About Me Part Two


About Me (Part Two)
Welcome back to Part Two of About Me. Over the last couple of years I have read several books on the art and craft of writing. I have read Stein On Writing, The Successful Novelist by David Morrell, On Writing by Stephen King, How to Write a Damn Good Novel Parts One and Two by James Frey and Writing Fiction for Dummies to name a few. What amazes me about these books is that there is such variant and often conflicting theories on the art and craft of writing. I have also used some writer’s software sold by Storymind such as Story Weaver and Dramatica Pro Version 4 by Melanie Anne Phillips. I have found this software to be most useful for structural issues.
Possibly, the most useful tip I got about writing was provided by Stephen King in his book, On Writing. In this book Stephen King indicates that to be a successful writer one must read a lot and write a lot.
